Juicing and smoothie’s have exploded back onto the health scene and everywhere you look on the internet, whether it be on health blogs, nutrition plans, Instagram the word juicing or smoothie pops up.

It took me a while to jump on the band wagon due to the perceived time and equipment barriers. So only in December did I ask Father Christmas for a blender and a juicer in order to begin my journey. Out of the two, although I love the fresh juices, I think I personally prefer making smoothies. It tends to be quicker, you seem to produce more drink from what you put in and the smoothie itself is more substantial due to the flexibility of what you can put into it.

As you may guess, I tend to get quite sweaty throughout the day – one of the few downfalls of having a job which revolves around exercise! I know I am not alone. I know many of you who have non exercise related jobs get a little clammy walking to the bus stop, sprinting to push yourself onto the Tube or after a hard day’s work feel tired and not very ‘fresh’ for your night ahead. With this in mind, when the lovely Halo Wipes team asked me to try out their handbag essentials, I jumped at the chance!

Oatmeal Cranberry Biscotti

If you’re looking for a sweet-treat that’s guilt-free – these biscotti are the perfect solution. There’s no oil, butter or margarine in my recipe, making them completely fat-free! These crunchy biscotti are a great accompaniment with tea or coffee.

Cranberries (including dried) are rich in anti-oxidants & renowned for their anti-inflammatory action in the prevention of urinary tract infections. Oats provide soluble fibre & lower the glycaemic index of these sweet treats – promoting steady blood sugar levels.

Now you know about Tara Stiles and hopefully can imagine who she is and what she stands for, the Yoga collection Reebok are about to launch in collaboration with her should make perfect sense ton you after reading this review. Reebok Yoga’s aim is to also bring Yoga to the masses and re-educate the general public. They want to bring Yoga into the twenty first century and make it relevant for women today from all walks of life. Many women (so their market research suggests), are put off trying Yoga because of the joss sniffing, chanting, hippy-ish stereotype. If you are not a regular gym goer you probably still have this impression of Yoga, and they want to re-define this picture.

On the other side of the Yoga spectrum, it has actually become very fashionable among the yummy mummies and well-to-do rich folk. This has also made some Yoga communities very exclusive and along with that some what expensive. Again, Reebok Yoga and Tara Stiles want to break down this barrier too and show that you do not have to be in a certain social class to practise Yoga.

Vita Coco – coconut water

You probably will have seen it stocked in up market gyms or fitness studios. You may have even seen Rihanna the new ‘face of the brand’ on local bus shelters helping to raise the profile and advertise this drink. The health and fitness industry is full of drinks and snacks that come into fashion and they usually cost more than they are worth. Well I thought I had better try Vita Coco and see for my self whether a) it tastes nice, b) is does the job and c) if it is worth the price tag.

Well I personally found the taste great! (coconut water with pineapple). It is not as sweet as I anticipated but actually really refreshing. I drank this straight after a Hot Bikram Yoga class so any drink which helps to hydrate after this kind of exercise has got to be good. It has much 20x more electrolytes than the leading sports drinks without the added sugar, preservatives or additives. Vita Coco is fresh and natural, straight from coconuts! I definitely felt that Vita Coco quenched my thirst and helped me to replenish my body from the intense heat and sweat I had just lost!

Bounce balls!

After exercising I am usually starving!  If I have come from the studio it is tempting to grab a quick snack from the nearest shop. Most of the time I end up buying the first reasonably healthy thing I can find  like a cereal or granola bar. Now what I really need is some good quality protein to replenish and restore the muscles I have just worked. The problem is this can be difficult to find particularly on the go.

This window after exercise is a vital time to put into the body some good quality protein. This will help to maximise the benefits of the exercise just untaken and fill the ‘hole’ in the stomach that has suddenly appeared. I have just recently come across Bounce Balls. They are small balls of natural energy in a range of flavours. The protein balls are full of good quality ingredients, are gluten free and really tasty. They are perfect after a workout and give you the right energy you need. They are small and can easily fit into a handbag or workout bag.
